I’m not quite getting the bit where everyone is complaining that, in my above Aftermath cover, the bass is too low in the mix.
In the meantime, I’ve played it on my reference system, but also downstairs, where we run two 2-way, 40 cm high window sill speakers, on my car stereo, and on my iPod with the foldable on-ear AKG headphones. On all of these, the bass is definitely present – not dominant, but definitely present.
The only listening test where it was down in the mix was on my wife’s HP notebook with her in-ear earbuds. Which was odd, because on an earlier recording I made, the bass was clearly audible – the difference being that on that recording, I used the jazz bass with both pickups, and on Aftermath, I used the Cort Action with mainly the neck element dialed in (and the occasional string buzz present, haha).
So… if you thought the bass was too low in the mix, what equipment were you using to listen?
